Summing up the EurAsEC work, President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that out of 151 agreements signed in the organization, 87 would remain in force. Only Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus, according to Nazarbayev, entered the Customs Union and Common Economic Space. The President reminded of the difficulties EurAsEC faced in terms of funding.
